Overview

Product Description

Quiet Large Capacity Dishwasher with PowerDry Option

This quiet dishwasher has all the cleaning power of Maytag without the ruckus, including the new PowerDry option that boosts drying power for completely dry dishes every time. It's Better Built with the most powerful motor on the market* and a 4-blade stainless steel chopper to chew up food scraps and rinse them away with the PowerBlast™ cycle. We built this large-capacity dishwasher with tough stainless steel in the tub, spray arm and silverware basket, and even added a Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel exterior, so it stays sparkling. Then we made it our most quiet dishwasher ever at only 47 dBA**—even quieter than coffee brewing. This large-capacity dishwasher is also backed with a 10-year limited parts warranty1,† and it's assembled in Findlay, Ohio with American pride.

Features

PowerDry Option

PowerDry Option

The PowerDry option decreases humidity in the tub and dries your dishes 50% better without using rinse aid.

PowerBlast® Cycle

PowerBlast® Cycle

The PowerBlast™ cycle removes stuck-on food with high pressure spray jets, increased temperature and hot steam to finish the job.

Most Powerful Motor on the Market<sup>2</sup>

Most Powerful Motor on the Market2

Maytag® dishwashers feature the most powerful motor on the market2, so you can be sure what you put in comes out clean.

4-Blade Stainless Steel Chopper

4-Blade Stainless Steel Chopper

No more scraping plates. The 4-blade stainless steel chopper disintegrates the food particles that come off your dishes so they don't end up recirculating and sticking to your dishes and glassware.

Additional Features

2X Life Tested Motor3

Our 2X Life tested motor3 is built to last and tested to prove it.

Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel Exterior

The easy-to-clean, Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel exterior keeps your dishwasher looking as good on the outside as it works on the inside.

Better Built to handle your dirtiest dishes

Maytag builds one tough dishwasher. We packed these models with sturdy stainless steel that'll stand up to years of the toughest cleaning jobs——everywhere from the Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel exterior to the stainless steel tub. Then we tossed in the strength of the most powerful motor on the market along with our 4-blade stainless steel chopper, so you can be sure what you put in comes out clean. Plus, we proudly stand behind our promises with a 10-year limited parts warranty1 that means these dishwashers are built for the long haul.

10 Year Limited Parts Warranty4

Maytag® dishwashers are covered by a 10-year limited parts warranty1 on the racks, chopper blade and stainless steel tub, so when we say you can count on Maytag® dishwashers for years of cleaning performance, we mean it.
4 Visit maytag.com for warranty details.

Designed, Engineered and Assembled in the USA

From Ohio to you, every Maytag® dishwasher is designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.

Industry-exclusive stainless steel silverware basket

Our industry-exclusive stainless steel silverware basket is built tough to handle whatever you throw at it. With roomy spaces on the ends for oddly shaped items like large spatulas and serving spoons, you can rely on this premium upgrade to take the trouble out of cleaning up after dinner.

Full Stainless Steel Tub

The full stainless steel tub is built of stainless steel from top to bottom, so it’s tough enough to handle high heat and resist cracking and staining for years.
